Abstract [en]

E-participation not only covers the general participation of citizens, but also enables higher education decision makers to communicate with all involved stakeholders. EU has funded projects in the area of e-participation in order to respond to this emerging requirement. Lots of studies have been published about these projects. But they have mainly covered technical aspects and less about non-technical challenges. In the present study, we have been trying to identify the non- technical factors. The EU-funded project MyUniversity has been selected as a case study. Data collection was conducted by means of recorded semi structured interviews with stakeholders. Data-analysis was done using a systematic coding of audio files. The following non-technical factors were identified and analyzed as crucial for the success of e-participation in higher education: 1) The socio-cultural context, 2) Identification of users, 3) Usability, drivers and motivation. The study showed that deeper needs assessments locally at each university and "cultural studies" should not be neglected. Moreover, each educational institute should use its own motivational techniques based on their cultural studies. This study concludes that the "business strategies" used by EU for introducing e-participation projects in higher education, need to be revised taking into account the identified issues.
